it was important >> in iran, i've been advocating for 30 years good relations between iran and the u.s., iran and the west. the problem is the lack of understanding in both sides. americans they do not understand iran. iranians do not understand america. the second major problem is mistrust. but mistrust is mutual. americans and the western countries, they need to understand why iran cannot trust the west. they have their own legitimate reasons. like americans and western countries, they cannot trust iran, iranians also they should understand why. being here i thought maybe that the most important job i can do to write a book on the nuclear issue as far as the nuclear issue is the issue number one. for the u.s. and the international community to present it the way the prospective and point of view of the iranians for american public opinion and politicians. to facilitate a possible peaceful solution for iranian nuclear crisis. >> there are a number of other questions, and you allude to this, related to trust. what do you say to those americans who argue that iran -- a deal with iran is really

-- hostile so you get the claim that someone is acting in revenge against the u.s., for instance, that has to be understood in terms of an understanding of the u.s. where there is no possibility for not taking revenge because the u.s. has to be hostile. the clearest example of this was november of 1979 when a group of a fanatics took over the grand mosque in mecca. the u.s. embassy is burned and there is fires. khomeini made some comments that were broadcast that the u.s. was somehow responsible for this. what possibly would lead people to think that could be the explanation of an attack whabi fanatics text if you assume the u.s. is hostile to islam in general, maybe you can conclude that it was the u.s.. the fundamental fact, the assumption of inherent hostility -- in the case of the region's coming out of the hour but spring is we have to focus to the extent we can on the pragmatic issue of the future. whatever past animosity there is toward the u.s., we want them to think not in terms of how do i get back at the u. s? rather what use can i make of the u.s. to do the things i can't do n

with and react to, the killing of the u.s. ambassador, chris stevens, and the attack on our consulate in benghazi? guest: there are really two points we should take away from what's going on in libya. the first is the response to the libyan government and in this case the libyan people actually attacking the terroristis are really quite encouraging, very different from the egyptian response, of course, again. the egyptian government did not denounce the attacks until a couple of days later when it was under pressure, the ruling party called for new protests in libya, very different, immediate denunciation of the attacks, the need to step up the deal esp confrontation with militants. but the second thing we have to remember about libya, this is still an instance in which a different kind of, you know, unofficial response, that is, you know, to put it mildly, a different kind of mob response, one that we like, one that was very much antiterrorist was used to fight the terrorists, and that suggests that the libyan government is still a very, very weak, its domestic police force is still very weak, s

stand today on the edge of a new frontier. the frontier of the 1960's. the frontier of unknown opportunities and perils. the frontier of unfilled hopes. woodrow wilson's new freedom promised our nation a new political and economic framework. franklin roosevelt's new deal offered help to those in need. the new frontier i see is not a set of promises. it is a set of challenges. it sums up not what i intend to offer to the american people what i intend to ask of them. it appeals to their pride. [applause] it appeals to our pride. not our security. a new frontier is here whether we seek it or not. beyond that frontier are uncharted areas of science and space, unsolved problems of peace and war. problems of ignorance and prejudice. unanswered questions of poverty. it would be easier to shrink from the new frontier to look to the same mediocrity of the past, to be lulled by good intentions and high rhetoric and those who prefer that clause should not vote for me are the democratic party. but i believe that the times require imagination and courage and perseverance. i am asking each o
a pioneering computer programmer in the 1950's. it is the story of my father, imprisoned and tortured in cuba, beaten nearly to death. he fled to texas in 1957, not speaking english, with $100 sewn into his underwear. he washed dishes making 50 cents an hour to pay its way through college and to start a small business in the oil and gas industry. my father is here today. when he came to america, [speaking spanish] he had nothing, but he had heard. a hard for freedom. thank you, dad. -- a heart for freedom. it is the story of each and everyone of you. where are the sons and daughters that risk everything for freedom and each of us has the duty to pass that seem liberty on to the next generation. and yet today, many in washington seem content to settle for crushing debt and a limited future. we're going broke. i'm here today with a word of encouragement. millions of americans are standing up saying, we want our country back. republicans, democrats, independents. we will not go down the path of greece. we will not go quietly into the night. president obama is immensely talented and a man of deep
's the first time manufacturing jobs have increased since the 1990s. and i'll tell you something else. the auto industry restructuring worked. it saved more than 1 million jobs and not just at gm chrysler and their dealerships but in auto parts manufacturing all over the country. that's why even the auto makers who weren't part of the deal supported it. they needed to save those part suppliers too. like i said, we're all in this together. so what's happened? there are now 250,000 more people working in the auto industry than on the day the companies were restructured. so now we all know that governor romney opposed the plan to save gm and chrysler. so here's another job score. are you listening in michigan and ohio and across the country? here's another job score. obama 250,000, romney 0. the agreement the administration made with the management labor and environmentment groups to double car mileage, too. it will cut your gas prices in half your gas bill. no matter what the price is, if you double the mileage of your car, your bil will be half of what it would have been it will make us more ene
